China - Henan (Chapter)
This is the Hénán chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
Affluent Chinese roll their eyes at the mention of impoverished and land-locked Hénán, yet the province’s heritage takes us back to the earliest days of Chinese antiquity. Ancient capitals rose and fell in Hénán’s north, where the capricious Yellow River (Huáng Hé) nourished the flowering of a great civilisation.
